Friday Video: Chilean urban downhill

Finland is still a frozen wasteland, although now the temperatures are on the rise and the slush has covered the earth. The bike season is nearing high and mighty, closing in on every sunny day. To get our minds off this dreadful weather, we treat ourselves and you guys for some awesome bike action from Chile and their major event of the year, the Valparaiso Cerro Abajo cup.

The idea of the race is similar to what we saw in our earlier post about the Atherton brothers riding down in a Brasilian Favela which is just beautiful in its madness. Crazy turns, blind spots, very narrow paths and dogs in your way. That’s the way of urban downhill and it would take me hours to make that run. It would be fun though.

Have a great weekend!
